Holiday Crafting Ideas
by Jackie Bagwell

The holiday season is a special time for many people. A time that brings families together, and a time of celebration. When creating your winter crafts, keep in mind the types of decorations and activities that are popular with this time of year. Here are a few helpful ides for your holiday creations:

Many families enjoy putting up a holiday tree, and look forward to decorating it together. Try offering unique ornaments that will help commemorate this holiday season for years to come. Since ornaments are something that can be passed down through a family, use coloring techniques for your particular medium that will help it keep from fading. That way future generations can enjoy that decoration just as much as the first.

What's cozier than curling up by a nice warm fire in your PJs in the winter time? If you excel in clothing or just want to give it a try, consider making soft, durable pajama sets or nightshirts. Winter-related designs such as snow, snowmen, candy cane, reindeer, polar bears, and so on can adorn your design in a very festive way.
